Museet for Religiøs Kunst

On one of the most beautiful sites of Lemvig you will find The Museum of Religious Art. 

At the Museum of Religious Art you can see the "Bodil Kaalund Collection" where the basic stem consists of the 159 original Bible illustrations, which the artist made in the years 1984-91 for the Bible Society's publication of the newly translated Bible from 1992.

The individual illustrations measure 53 x 42.5 cm and are made as watercolor over lithograph. The collection also includes a number of preparatory works for the illustrations in addition to a few that were not included in the Bible.

The museum also has the "East Greenlandic collection" and the "Rouault Collection".

During large and space-consuming theme exhibitions, the Museum's permanent collection and the Bodil Kaalund Collection can be narrowly represented.

About the museum director and the Museum of Religious Art
The Museum of Religious Art is led by Christine Løventoft, who over a year together with her colleagues arranges 3-4 special exhibitions of international standard, which attract guests from all over Denmark and abroad.

The museum is currently run with relatively few permanent employees and approx. 70 volunteers and enthusiastic staff. Together, they create fine exhibitions in the museum, which was built in 1994. In 1998 and 2006, the museum was expanded a lot, and it made possible, among other things, larger exhibitions.
